in reply to On packaging modules

src/ directory? I do my editing in lib/ and then do a make tardist when I'm ready to go. What does a src/ directory get me?

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

    Sounds like the src/ directory is just wherever you happen to keep the module you are working on. Don't think it was intended to be something actually in the distribution.

    Uh, yeah, what ysth said. It's the hypothetical working directory (note that it's not in the tarball listing), where you keep your build system script, Changes file, and so forth.

    It's what contains lib.

    I tried posting twice, appearantly I was too much of an airhead yesterday to go past the preview stage...
